Most RPG games require playing in a landscape orientation which opposes the natural way of holding mobile phones. However, it seems like Age of Legend, the producer of Plague Invader: Survival Wars, relied on that information to create something that doesn’t oppose the natural way of holding phones. Aside from the stunning graphics and enticing story, you have a game that is highly addictive.

While Age of Legend possibly wanted Plague Invader: Survival Wars to be very interesting using its features, its plethora of features and vastness means that playing the game without help will be challenging. Many players simply don’t understand the game and will waste the in-game currency before they understand.

Plague Invader: Survival Wars is a very easy game to play. The gameplay is very easy, and the most basic thing you need to know is that you have several soldiers (you will start with four), and you take them to battle your enemies (mutants and heroes of various levels). Each soldier or hero has special abilities, and assembling the best team can help you win. It is an idle game, as everything is generated automatically. Also, you can control your heroes manually or allow them to fight automatically.

Game Menu

Plague Invader: Survival Wars can confuse new players due to its game menu. Here we will discuss the basic things you need to know about the segments that make up the game menu.

This is the main part of the game that will directly take you to the gaming arena. There are several features in this menu. We have the Notebook icon, which denotes the quest you have to undertake to get a particular reward or level up. For every quest you complete, you get the claim of the reward given.

Aside from the two, other icons that appear on the World Menu are Events you unlock later in the game. They include Vehicle Evolution which shows the stages of improvement your vehicle is undergoing to turn into a giant mecha mutant killing robot.

The Interstellar summon is similar to the Wish Summon. However, here you can summon the strongest heroes to aid your cause. Since you are summoning the strongest, the number of attempts increases, and the cost is slightly higher.

Plague Invader Survival Wars have a simple look; however, it can be tedious when you don’t know what to do. Below are several tips and tricks you can try.

Focus on upgrading a hero at a time

If you have the luck of getting the best team from the lucky draws, you can focus on upgrading them till they get to 5 red stars. Also, you don’t need all the strongest characters at the beginning. Having special main characters can be worth it when pushing on stage and adventure until you build your best squad.

Direct attacks on the team member in danger

A simple strategy you can add to your list is to control the mecha to attack enemies unto the team member or the enemy with the lowest HP. This will reduce the elimination of your team members and contribute to your victory. 

Choose the right lineup

Every hero is unique in terms of abilities and special powers. As a result, using the right strategy can be the difference between winning and losing. For example, many pro players suggest putting the support hero at the rear end to heal the team. Also, the strongest man should be in the middle. You can treat other heroes depending on their abilities.

You can choose the best heroes using the Chess pawn icon at the right part of the screen.

Pay attention to watch skills

The watch contains special skills that can be tailored to your character based on their roles. As a result, when you properly use them, you can boost the hero’s effectiveness. For example, for Assault heroes, you can consider equipping the hero with a watch that will guarantee a boost in offensive capabilities such as Rage, Warpath, and Morale.  

There are essential team members

Although the choice of heroes depends on the enemy, most time, you should have a healer and reviver in your team. This is very important to winning, especially in the Skyscraper Rescue mission,

Analyze the Enemies

You should know the enemies you intend to face to choose the right hero for the attack. This includes understanding the enemy’s composition and their number of heroes. Ensure you have something to combat their strength. 

Understand the game
